A Knockout Birthday

A roof for the rain, please. A very heavy rainstorm during the night seriously affected the planning of Mr. Bowie’s Gotcha Day Party, aka the Puddingfest. Heavy rainfall followed by flooding didn’t causes real damage but Mr. Bowie had to protect himself from water snakes and alligators. If all goes well, we’ll start planning the party for next Friday or Saturday.


Well, bad days happen to all. Fortunately, at the end of the day, there was a surprise twist that I really didn’t see coming. My niece came along and gave me 1 liter delicious home-made chocolate mousse. The bad day has turned out to be a good one after all.



PS: Don’t give chocolate to your cat. Chocolate contains naturally occurring methylxanthines known as theobromine. The concentration of theobromine which is toxic to cats.

  1. No matter what the weather is like, birthdays and gotcha days are always celebrated with love and yummy things like chocolate mousse! Lucky Herman……I hope you both have fun celebrating the occasion WHENEVER you have it!


  2. Well Happy Celebrating anyway! Maybe make it a week long thing, starting with that wonderful pudding! I think Mr. Bowie has been ‘outed’ on his ‘secret’ job there selling pudding 🙂 Hope the Vet goes well.

    • Sorry for the confusion, Nia. It’s my birthday but Mr. Bowie’s Gotcha Day! He adopted me 5 years ago on my birthday…

  3. Even a big brave cat can’t take on alligators, no! Or chocolate, or onions, either. I’m glad your storm didn’t bring any damage. And hopefully his checkup is a good one. Then after that, Party On!

  4. Dang always the way! but a bonus choc mousse is great! also good that you popped the warning up about chocckie and cats..and dogs..my boys love carob which I think would make a great mousse for the handsome birthday boy 🙂 Fozziemum

  5. and OMC I hope your weather has a turn to the better soon oO. Otherwise I may have to send Nubes over to you. She is snakey enough for a cat to take on mean snakes and alligators 😀

  6. Chocolate mousse sounds good! Perhaps Mr. Bowie thought is was chocolate mouse? Our Abby is one you have to watch every minute around ice cream or other goodies. She’ll lick a conical hole down into your dish of ice cream or mousse before you know it.

  7. So, our question is, did you open your gifts? Seems Dad got some pretty nommy mousse there. Lucky, guy. We think you deserve something equally nommy and suitable for cats. Keep us posted on your party plans. Thanks for stopping by our blogoversary yesterday. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • Thank you, my dear friends! I’ll keep you informed on the party plans.
      Btw, Mr. Bowie already got some fresh and nommy cat treats…

  8. Good Grief, Dutch water snakes and alligators….gevaarlijke geluiden !!!

    Sorry to hear your celebration is delayed, we are also getting heavy rains today as we often do in July after a long stretch of warm weather. It was preceded by a thunder and lightening show last evening. I didn’t like it much and neither did Petals and Blossum. I’d rather see Birthday Banners blowing gently in the breeze. xo
